Jesus(c. 6/4BC – c. AD 30/33), aka Jesus Christ, was one of the world’s greatest religious leaders. Almost 2000 years after his death, his influence still lives on. Christmas, is a celebration of his birth, celebrated on December 25th, though the actual birth date is unknown. Christianity is the most popular religion, with an estimated 2.2 billion Christians in the world today. However, you do not have to be Christian to appreciate his wise words.
Here are some of Jesus Christ’s greatest quotes:
Love your neighbor as yourself.
He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone.
For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
Ask and it will be given. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened for you.
Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will brings its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them? And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
Give, and it shall be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured to you.
It is not what goes into a man from outside that can make him unclean. It’s what comes out of him that makes him unclean.
If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them.
Thank you Jesus Christ!
